Lea Michele may play a goody two-shoes on Glee, but the 25-year-old has revealed her edgy side in real life. During a chat with David Letterman on the 'Late Show', Michele admitted that she had 14 tattoos in total, though noted, "but they're all so little that you don't see them".
Michele - who grew up in the Bronx - says her parents weren't surprised by her body art, revealing that it's actually a family tradition, "For me, it's weirdly enough a family activity", said Lea, adding, "I come from a very big Italian family; tattoos are very popular. So, it'll be, like, Easter, and we'll be talking, and we'll be like, 'Let's all go get tattoos! And then we get super sentimental, and then the next day I wake up with another butterfly on my foot. And I'm like, 'It seemed more important in the moment". Michele - who is currently dating her co-star Cory Monteith, 30 - also gave a special insight into what will go down in the fourth season of Glee, set to air next fall, saying, "You'll still see the kids that this year were juniors; you'll still see them next year in high school.And then you'll follow the people who have graduated outside of high school, whenever they may go".
In the movie world, the actress last starred in the romantic-comedy 'New Year's Eve', alongside Ashton Kutcher and ROBERT DE NIRO.
